11  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / Mini Flowers | Hand-painted glass tealight holders on: December 30, 2006 03:34:57 AM

I made these tealight holders as a housewarming gift - the recipient loved them. They make an excellent Christmas present, too.

Let me know what you think!

12  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Christmas Pudding Christmas Cards on: November 15, 2006 01:05:36 PM
I made my xmas cards in October  Embarrassed
In fact, I started them in August. How sad am I?

The reason I started them so early is because I wanted to make lots of them. In total I made 45 cards. How did I do this? I carved a little stamp of a Christmas pudding out of a rubber, and stamped away with acrylic paints onto a green background. I made that with diluted drawing ink. (You could use watercolour, but ink doesn't move.) Then I simply glued the 'toppers' onto a 50 pack of cards I bought from Hobbycraft, and decorated with a gold sticky border. And there they were!

Let me know what you think.

13  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Swing Cardigan - self-designed cropped cardi on: November 14, 2006 08:28:06 AM

Few more photos on Flickr: http://flickr.com/photos/nushbush/tags/swingcardigan
More details on my blog: http://magic-fingers.blogspot.com/2006/11/fo-swing-cardigan.html

This cardi was knitted in discontinued Rowan Polar bought on the cheap. It is a top-down raglan with waist shaping and flair. The pattern is my own and I'm considering writing it up, so let me know if you'd be interested in a pattern.

14  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Recent Pieces in Pen and Ink on: November 07, 2006 12:33:44 PM
I recently discovered the joys of drawing ink. Its fluidity is a joy to work with and I've become taken away. Colour is a very important feature in my work, so the vividness of the available shades astound and delight me. I'm a 15yrold girl currently in the second year of GCSE art, and panicking about the mocks starting next week. The 'Portrait of a Lady' series is an interim piece done as part of the course; the other two portraits (of myself) were just for fun.

15  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Knitted miniskirt and red beret on: October 30, 2006 10:19:56 AM
Miniskirt, knitted then felted, in R2 fuzzi felt in cream. I made it in May but it's only just become cold enough to wear. Pattern is from R2 issue 2 but modified a lot.

The photos are clickable! Click to go to the relative page on Flickr.

Beret knitted in Lamb's Pride Worsted in raspberry. Pattern is from Rowan 29.

16  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Craftalongs / Art journals- a craftalong on: October 27, 2006 01:02:14 PM

There are lots of mixedmedia and collage artists on Craftster, as well as writers and artists themselves. The number of people creating ATCs is growing (WE NEED AN ATC BOARD!!!) and as well as making them, lots of people keep a journal or diary - including myself.

This week I started an art journal. For me, this has been incredibly beneficial to my artistic self as it means that I can combine two things which I love dearly - writing and painting - into one book. It's such fun having half an hour to yourself every evening writing about your day whilst incorporating collage, sketches, or even just sticking pieces of memorabilia from your day down.

I thought that it would be good to have a thread where people could post pictures from their art journal, say once a week (when exactly is up to you) so that we can all look at the images and draw inspiration for our own journals. I'll start in the post below, meanwhile the following thread has many helpful links, and some nice images too: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=64664.0

Lots of nice pictures (including some of my own): http://www.flickr.com/search/?q=art%20journals&w=all

Gorgeous stuff involving fabric: http://fabricartjournals.blogspot.com/

I'm sure that there are some LiveJournal.com communities but I can't seem to remember their names.

Anyway, I'll post a week's worth of my own entries, and tell me what you think of this idea and whether you'd be willing to participate and contribute.

20  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Cute reversible tote (with vintage 70s cotton!) on: February 19, 2006 05:20:51 AM
Yay! Making easy totes is my new stress-reliever. Who knew that ramming that presser-fot down could be so satisfying?

I found the fabric in my grandma's craft cupboard of doom...I absolutely LOVE the 70s floral print! I need a blouse like that, I think. Look at it!

Anyway, here's the "main" side of the tote. I did a star applique; it's the second time I've tried applique and it didn't turn out brilliantly, but practise makes perfect Smiley

And, inside-out! It's still cool!

And I had to make a matching zipper pouch.

Back to digging around in the stash cupboard...Tell me what you think! Not bad for my second tote, eh?
